Best Friends

Best Friends

If you've ever watched sitcoms like 'Friends' and 'How I Met Your Mother', you'll notice that the characters in the sitcom portray what best friends should be really well. 

Here are the similarities I gather from the above sitcoms I've mentioned

  1. They hug each other all the time
  2. They apologise when they're wrong (eventually)
  3. They tell the truth (although sometimes it can be hilarious or mean)
  4. They are honest (that's why they tell the truth)
  5. They respect each other (although sometimes NOT)
  6. They push you and encourage you to reach your goals (Drink more BEER!)
  7. They laugh at your jokes although they don't know what it means
  8. After laughing at your joke, they make a joke out of you by teasing you
  9. They are always connected to you (Whatsapp / Telegram chatgroups)
    and the list goes on..

So having the opportunity to document the friendship of these ladies (Phyllis, Winnie, Shanice & Amanda) gives me a chance to rethink what friendships should be.

These ladies were so joyful (even though we started the session really early),  they enjoyed each other's company, teased one another and laughed to their heart's desire. Friendships should be like that. Don't you think so?

Anyway, have a wonderful 2015 everyone!

Friends Don't Quit

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

We are all aware of the importance of having friends. There are friends for just every occasion / events be it going out for coffee with, friends we shop with and much more. Despite having a friend for every occasion, having a best friend is definitely one of the best gifts in life. 

That’s why to me, it is always great to have a good circle of supportive best friends because they play a humongous role in ones' life. Being around good friends aid in building and shaping one’s character and the person he/she is today. It is also through all of the struggles and disagreements that will inevitably create strong bonds within a group of individuals who all want the same thing in life: to live a successful life and be surrounded by successful people.

These girls have known one another since secondary school days and they each portray the traits of what a best friend should be doing - giving comfort to one another, having tonnes of fun, joy and laughter with one another, openly talk about topics that no ordinary friends would talk about, and much more. These girls are so connected that nothing in my opinion can ever break their bond; definitely worthy of our admiration.

Anyway, here are some pictures from the Friendship photo-shoot recently concluded.

And.... 10 beautiful best friends makes a Big Heart!
